Ernie's Book Club: Episode 3
Brief synopsis of the Scottish historian's transcendent work on the history of the world economy: "The Ascent of Money."
The book answers every finance 101 question:
1. Where did the Jewish money stereotype come from?
2. How did life insurance become a thing?
3. What was the housing crisis and will it happen again soon?
Ferguson does an outstanding job of making boring s*#t interesting. Its "The Big Short" if it started in Ancient Mesopotamia.
